SPREAD the LOVE I’m feeling the winter doldrums and want to spread a little cheer and love. 50% off all my patterns!!

New hat version of Dandelion Days here!!!

Dandelion Days has a beautiful combination of lace & seed stitch which makes this cowl look more complicated than it actually is to knit. You will be pleasantly surprised to find out how easy it is to memorize the stitch pattern. With both charts and written instructions, knitters are able to choose the most comfortable way to follow the pattern.

The combination of the stitch pattern and pretty yellow yarn reminds me of a field full of dandelions. What flowers will your combination evoke?

The pattern is easily customizable to make a smaller/longer cowl and/or shorter/taller cowl. Notes are included as to how to modify the pattern to fit your needs.
